[REBOL] Re: question on View widgets

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 18-Jan-2004 9:55

Hi Evan, EH> Does anyone know how to make the VIEW widgets displayed in EH> Windows environments "visible" to my software. EH> Most windows buttons, text boxes, etc. are visible to my EH> voice recognition software, but VIEW's are not. The alt-key letter EH> is usually underscorred too. You can't AFAIK, because they are not true Windows controls. That is, they are not windows as far as Windows is concerned--they don't have handles, etc. For better or for worse, this is how REBOL handles cross-platform GUIs, so the chance of changing it is probably near zero. VID is meant to be a small, lightweight, GUI system. If we want RT to consider extending it--for things like better focus handling, visible hot-keys, skinning, etc.--we have to make an excellent argument for it. The upcoming View 1.3 release won't have any of these changes however. -- Gregg
